All kinds of stuff is trickling out into the driveby media, from gutless Republican career politicians, about anxiety over repealing ObamaCare. Richard Hudson told us he talked to 12,000 people on the phone and they were all “freaked out” over losing their ObamaCare.
These yo-yos were given a majority in 2010 with the primary mission of slaying this evil horrid beast. They’ve had SIX YEARS — almost seven — to get a game plan together. (Every year that has passed has allowed this bureaucratic nightmare to sink its talons deeper into the fabric of our society and do even more damage to our health care system.)
I’ll tell you what’s going on. These people never imagined that the day would come where they would actually have to act on their rhetoric. Sure, it was easy to throw us a bunch of red meat on the campaign trail. But then they could come back to Washington and complain about how Obama and Harry Reid were jamming things up. (Harry Reid went away in 2014, but Obama was still there as a convenient scapegoat.)
Now, Republicans have the whole ball of wax in DC. They can do what they want. And they’ve got a mandate. What’s the problem?
We’ve got a lot of people who went to DC and discovered they like it. They’ve learned the key to staying up there is avoiding making ANYbody mad. Give away a bunch of stuff. Don’t cut anything. Be Santa Claus. (Even in June.) Couple those people with those we sent up there who really seem to enjoy holding sway over the lives of “the little people” back home, and you see the enormity of the problem we face.
We need to stay on these people. Put the squeeze on them in such a way it would make the IRS or the mafia wince.
ObamaCare HAS to go. NOW.
We don’t want a new welfare program in its place. Start by thinning the red tape strangling our existing health care system. Despite all of the red tape, we STILL have the best system in the world. People from around the globe come HERE for their care. Even the Saudi royal family.
As government has increased its involvement in health care, the system’s performance has deteriorated. It’s become more impersonal and more expensive. If you really care about saving the country for future generations, kill this beast and start cleaning up the mess DC has already made.
